Grilled Greek Vegetables in Foil Packet


Since many of us are grilling these days, I wanted to share a delicious and easy way to add grilled vegetables to your meal.  What could be easier than putting some sliced vegetables, seasoning and a little olive oil  sealed in a foil packet, then heated on the grill?  When done, sprinkle some feta cheese on top for a quick and healthy side dish.  Oh, and easy to clean up too!  

Grilled Greek Vegetables in Foil Packet
Recipe by Jamie from Mom's Cooking Club 

(printable recipe)

Ingredients

2 zucchini, sliced
2-3 small yellow squash, sliced
1/2 pint cherry tomatoes
2 teaspoons olive oil
1 teaspoon Greek Seasoning ( I used Cavender's All Purpose Greek Seasoning)
Pinch of salt and pepper
1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese

Preparation

Mix zucchini, squash, tomatoes, olive oil, Greek seasoning, salt and pepper in bowl.  Place vegetable mixture on a large piece of aluminum foil.  Bring up sides of foil.  Fold top and sides to form a foil packet.  Leave some air in packet for air circulation.  

Place foil packet on grill, cover and cook for 10-15 minutes.  Place foil packet on plate/platter, open carefully and sprinkle feta cheese on top. 

I like to serve the entire foil packet on a plate at the table.

Enjoy!

Mom's Cooking Club Lesson:  You can also make these foil packet vegetables in the oven.  Place sealed foil packet on cookie sheet and bake in 450 degree oven for about 15 minutes or until vegetables are tender.

I love the easy clean up thing. Well, my husband cooked this menu, or closer to this one last week during our afternoon barbecue at home. He was so excited to try out the gas barbecue accessories that my mother-in-law gave us with matching barbecue recipe book. The kids asked for more grilled vegetables and pork barbecue in sticks. My eldest gamely told us her amazing bbq reviews of her Dad's awesome barbecue cooking.

Thanks for sharing the recipe Jamie!
